  • Current Rent Roll
  • Brief narrative description of the property.

  • What is the purpose of the loan? Acquisition, Refinance, cash out, reposition the property (renovations).

Next we will need to know your objective, how much do you wish to borrower on the apartment complex?  Is this a long term investment or short term investment?  In other words outline your loan request.

We understand the financing of an apartment complex is a very important component of the investment.  Therefore, we encourage our client to send us details on the property before finalizing the purchase and sale contract for an indication of the type of loan that might be available to a particular property.

Houston Multifamily Market:

1Q2021 Houston Multifamily Market Report:

Over the past five years, Houston has seen an increase of 212,000 new households, which is second in the US.  Houston’s economy has been growing over that same period due to the state’s lenient business policies.  However, the Houston economy was affected more than most during the shutdown due to its strong presence in the energy sector.  At the height of the pandemic, oil prices plummeted to negative numbers and limited travel equated to limited energy usage, which devasted Houston’s energy corridor.  During this period, 365,000 jobs were lost as Houston’s unemployment rate went from 3.8% to 14.7%.  Luckily, Houston was able to have an accelerated reopening and recover many of the jobs lost but the energy sector is still slow to recover as travel is still limited.  Although the energy sector employment is expected to remain volatile for some time, the Houston economy is expected to fully recover by the end of 2021 as the other US cities begin to open back up and travel is returning to pre-pandemic levels.  240,000 new households are expected to arrive to Houston by 2025 and the median home price rose 13.4% in 2020, which should increase the demand for apartment renters in the area.  The increasing migration and lenient business policies should draw in business to the metro, which will again increase the demand for high-end apartments in or around the downtown area of the city.  A majority of the new inventory in the metro is expected to go to the Northwestern submarket where the area’s inventory is set to grow 40 percent over a two year stretch.

By the numbers:

In 2021, employment is expected to grow by 2.7 percent with 87,200 new jobs being created, this is falling short of the net 138,000 jobs lost during 2020.  In 2021, apartment inventory will grow by 2.5% as 18,200 new units will be added.  Due to the large supply, vacancy is expected to increase by 30 basis points to 7.3%.  Due to the supply outpacing the demand, effective rent is expected to decline 0.8% to $1,086 per month.  In 2020, average sales price rose 7 percent and average cap rates fell 20 basis points to 6 percent.
